3306049 - How to use Developer console in SAP CPQ application


Brief instructions on available features in Developer console and how to use them.




There are 5 checkboxes in Developer console UI and by selecting each one it's possible to achieve:

  • Trace - Enable/disable tracing of all actions in SAP CPQ. You can download the traced actions as XLSX files and then upload them to the Developer console on a different environment for the purpose of troubleshooting.

  • Full Mode - Select to view traces related to all actions performed in SAP CPQ. Otherwise, if you don’t select the option, only traces that are related to products, rules and scripting are displayed. If you wish to switch between the default and the full mode, you need to check/uncheck the Full Mode checkbox and repeat the user action.

  • Trace Script API Calls - Select to view traces related to scripting API calls.
  • Disable UI Customizations - Select to disable any customization made to the template and branding and to revert SAP CPQ to the default template and branding. The customization is disabled only during the current session. This feature helps administrators during troubleshooting to establish if a UI issue is caused by a broken customization.

  • Disable Iron Python Script Execution - Select to completely disable the execution of Iron Python scripts. When the checkbox is selected, neither global nor local scripts are executed as long as the Developer Console is open. With this feature, it is easier to identify performance issues that are caused by Iron Python scripts.
